The publishing industry has gone “viral” with digital online and app publishing and experienced an exponential rapid rise of over 372% since 2007*. This format continues to climb the charts with the daily advancement of technology. It makes great sense economically for both advertisers and publishers as digital publishing enjoys international circulation without the cost of printing, distribution and fuel surcharges, lower ad costs, and naturally, the green effect. With digital publishing there exists the increasing valued asset of global eblasted circulation, global key word search engine circulation, “live” ad commercials, archived back issues, and email forwarding to friends and potential clients, all at enormous savings passed on to you, the advertisers. Another outstanding advantage of digital publishing is hot-linked ads, web-addresses and contacts linked directly back to your websites to drive traffic instantly to your websites, or called right from your ad page, for potentially increased sales. A very strong asset unique to this format making it a leader over print supplementing it. We service our 25,000 member database directly along with our social networking presence on Facebook, Twitter, Linked In, In addition to the myriad of social “internet-worked” western lifestyle sites. We offer SEO circulation and service over 200 global search engines. Whether you prefer to sit down with a cup of coffee and a traditional glossy magazine or are the techy-type that likes to peruse via your computer or hand-held device, tCmag is hard to beat and even harder to put down! *Gilbran Digital Reporting
